I seem to be on the centre-left:

Lol I would've thought that I was an extreme centrist too, but somehow they always put me on the centre-left. I'm guessing it's my strong acceptance of homosexuality and being (to an extent) for abortion. I guess that part "moves" me to the left, otherwise my ideas are usually center, even leaning to right at times.

I expected you to be centre-right for some reason though. Lol...

I'm not a political person.  In fact, I hate politics in general.. all politicians are corrupt.. however, when we have our federal election this year, I'm happily voting for the Liberals

I do too tbh, but I would think that every person would somehow fall somewhere in that political compass, even if you're someone as apathetic as a hippie or goth.

I guess you're on the left side because you have acceptance towards homosexuality (from reading your posts). Not sure about your views on abortion though. :)

Def support homosexuality!

I used to be anti abortion, but my views have changed in the last couple years.  I mean, it varies depending on the situation.  I'm all for abortion if the child is conceived in an unconventional way such as rape.  Also if the baby has no chance in having a good life, like a crackhead getting pregnant.  Otherwise I'm not a big fan of it if it's done "just because".

Exactly my thoughts on abortion! I'm very "moderate" about it. Not extremely for it nor that against it.

EDIT: This may sound "controversial", but I would be for abortion if the baby is coming out disabled (whether it's mental or physical). Of course it has to the mother's choice. I think a parent still deserves a high quality of life. For instance, my cousin is disabled (whom I love of course). She's mentally normal, but she can't walk. The father always has to pick her up and "walk" her to the toilet and such. They rarely go out because of her, as she's become a burden for them. When she was pregnant with her, the doctor did say that the baby won't come out normal, but she insisted on keeping her. If she didn't keep her, her life would've been very different now...and for the better...

You are a center-right social moderate.
Right: 1.37, Authoritarian: 0.64

Though I could have come close to the center, a lot of these questions could have had a slightly different answer.

I suspect more people will be closer to the center, be it from the right or left.

I never actually thought about that.. I guess I would be ok with it because I know there are a lot of people out there who could not afford to take care of a special needs child, not just money wise but just always having to be there in general. I mean, you basically have to put your life on hold to care for someone else 24/7.  Personally I wouldn't be able to do that.  Autism would be different,  but severely disabled would be very hard for me.. I hate to say it

I would say that your stance on homosexuality, religion and/or abortion would automatically "push" you more to one side of the spectrum. I think these polls put these three on a higher priority as they're big society issues nowadays.

They probably put you more on the right side because your view on one of these wasn't very "liberal" to them (i.e. against gay marriage or abortion?).  :mrgreen:

I agree. It's not that we're bad people (and we say it with regret), but taking care of a person who is disabled isn't for everyone. It's actually more "selfish" to give birth to them just to abandon or neglect them when they're growing up (and this sad atrocity happens).

I'm not quite as familiar with some of the political terms(not from an English speaking country).  Guess I'm kind of mixed on things, I'm against modern PC liberals but still agree with some things. Definitely against the gay movement, personally for the seperation of religion and state. Used to be against abortion but I've changed my mind on that not long ago. Just look at all the very young Yazidi girls who were raped by those Isis sub-humans scum and have become pregnant. I don't think it's wrong to get abortions in cases like this. Still I didn't expect to be that far on the left.

Yes, odd, you're much further left than me (being for gay rights) and yet you're against homosexuality. I guess the poll doesn't put gays on a high priority as I thought it did? Since you're a lot to the left, you probably do share a lot of liberal views, except I'm wondering why you're against homosexuality? What's wrong with that "movement"? We're no different to the black movement that emerged in the 60s. After all, we want equal rights. Gladly we're getting some these days, but people still seem to be openly against LGBT.

Neon, I know you are only asking him out of curiosity, but people are free to choose what they believe in. For most Assyrians and Christians in general, it comes down to it being in conflict with their religion.

But just remember, being against gay marriage is not necessarily the same as being against homosexuality in general. Personally, it is their personal life, but when it comes to gay marriage, I oppose it. But will I go out of my way to stop homosexuals from getting married? No! That is their choice.

Sorry don't mean to turn this into another political/social/religious thread and hijack the original purpose of this topic.

Just like Neon said, I am surprised you came more to the left of the spectrum, even though both of your culture and foreign policy scores came close to mine (more to the right)

I think it's because I agree with the rights to guns and also abortion, those are more important anyway and the test seems to reflect it. For religion, I'm fond of christianity but when I look at how religion has divided the Assyrian people I feel that seperation of church and state is important. On the other hand I live in the West where this would mean more rights for gays and other immoral things, but if it surpresses Islam then I am conservative on that issue. As for homosexuality, they shouldn't get to marry or adopt children, have disgusting parades in public etc. it's about morality again. I wouldn't care if they would keep to themselves though.

Noticed that a lot of people in here are on the far-left (as opposed to far-right, which I'd expect among Middle Easterners). Very interesting.

My results may be biased since most questions would apply to an english country rather than the country I'm living in. However, if I had to fix things in the middle east, I would support homosexuals, abortion and religious freedom. I would stop any intervention with any country around us unless it's supporting victims financially or, allowing them in. I would want our culture and values to remain but, still allow and be open to other cultures. From the above, UAE needs to work on the homosexuals rights...but, it's going to be one long journey.  :bangin:

I think the reason why middle easterners are on the far-left because states were not formed based on one religion (despite islam being the dominant one), one ethnicity, one language and one culture. This is different than European countries which were formed based on christianity and the white race then throughout the years, immigrants came and it became a multiethnic state. This is why you would find them on the far-left. :)

I did "disagree" on that. It didn't matter that much to me.

I also have this sentiment on same sex surrogacy. I personally think that it's daunting to have a parent somewhere out there that you'll probably never meet. It also seems begrudging to have an uncle, aunt, cousin, etc, that you'll never meet. As gay as I am and how much I want to marry the same sex (gay marriage), I just cannot fathom surrogacy.

Of course, I won't get in their way and point fingers. It just isn't for me personally. I like the natural idea of a mother and father. And the fact that I am blood tied to them and their kin. That's beautiful nature for you. And no, this has NOTHING on homosexuality and the love for the same sex (liberals would probably scrutinize me for this and use stuff like "you're gay backstabber"). With that being said, I don't mind surrogacy if the OTHER parent is present and if the kids are in contact with them.

Ins001, it's becoming creepy how us two tend to have the same thoughts on some things. Are you like myself in an alternative word? Lol

Very strange how they put you so far on the left, considering that you're pro-war and believe that not all cultures are equal (since both are associated with  the right-wing). Because of your polarizing stance, shouldn't they have at least put you at the centre?  :blink:

the questions are vague at times, then there's the "how much you care about this topic?" scale.

I consider myself Center-Right.

I think it's because I agree with the rights to guns and also abortion, those are more important anyway and the test seems to reflect it. For religion, I'm fond of christianity but when I look at how religion has divided the Assyrian people I feel that seperation of church and state is important. On the other hand I live in the West where this would mean more rights for gays and other immoral things, but if it surpresses Islam then I am conservative on that issue. As for homosexuality, they shouldn't get to marry or adopt children, have disgusting parades in public etc. it's about morality again. I wouldn't care if they would keep to themselves though.

The overwhelming of homosexuals don't go to gay parades and are against it, majority of them that are apart of the gay parade are SJW and straight people.

Homosexuality isn't immoral when it's genetic, it's also found in 100+ species in the animal kingdom and has been around in civilization way before Abrahamic mythology.

What do you mean 'keep it to themselves', are you bothered when a straight couple is making out in public? Why do you have illegitimate and irrational fears on this?

Just pay closer attention to the questions for accurate results. I consider myself a centrist that leans to the left, and yet I always end up as that. So if they're vague how come they're getting it right?

I thought your position was justified though. You have a lot of right-wing ideas (not that it's a bad thing), from what you expressed here. What were your thoughts on abortion, sex before marriage, morality without religion and homosexuality?

That's exactly like mine. Although the last test crossed me over to the authoritarian side. But I've always been a centre-leftist social moderate. :)

It's true that the women in the gay parades tend to be heterosexual, and usually, feminists.

To be fair, it could be a guy thing. Men are really visual. So it's understandable for them to be really repulsed when they see something sexually unattractive to them. Gays guys are disgusted by vaginas anyway. Lol. I don't think religion is always the root to homophobia, even though it can be used as an excuse.

abortion I thought should be allowed because there's alot of dumb teenaged (sometimes young adult) broads who, despite sex education, """some how""" manage to still get pregnant by accident at a moment of their life when they have absolutely NO real way to independently support a child without going on welfare and draining a valuable resource that should be reserved for those down on their luck.


sex before marriage I thought shouldn't really be allowed on the basis that having sex without truly loving the other person has a strange psychological effect and ruins future relationships some how. sex before marriage isn't really the issue but sex without real love. I believe the marriage bit came about because it was considered that marriage was the ultimate way to show that you really loved someone; thus it became "sex before marriage"

morality without religion I thought was religion was a very good way of spreading morality because it incited a belief in something even though it's a very flawed way as it pretty much relies on soft brainwashing but it really does the job done. Religion and Nationalism, being part of an overall common group is a huge unifying factor when it comes to societies. You need a strongly united society in order to keep the state stable. The problem with a single common group of course is the exclusion of those not within the group but that's inevitable without placing them into the overall group some how.

My thoughts on homosexuality was that if it's really controlled by DNA, then there's no choice but to accept it as there's nothing to be really done about it.

You're going to dislike this Neon and Dom but don't take it personally.

I dislike the modern, Western idea of Homosexuality because I've noticed that homosexual Assyrians, here in the USA, place their sexuality higher than their Assyrian identity; they're more concerned with being gay instead of being Assyrian.

It's even gotten to a point where "gay" seems to be their ethnic identity rather than Assyrian and I've noticed this trend with other non-Assyrian gays. Also, I'm using gay to mean both men and women, not just men alone.

At a weak point in our very history and in consideration with our survival, we need every Assyrian to lend a helping hand...

Yeah, your ideas on sex before marriage and morality without religion were "right" enough. Centrism is rather liberal on these. But, that's that.

Nah, it's okay. You're speaking of OTHER gays who act like this (and they exist). Don't forgot those who think they have a common ground with Islam.
